MOROCCO, THE NEW TANGIER MARINA SOON OPERATIONAL
Starting this summer, the new Tangier marina will be able to accommodate the first 400 boats, while another 1,200 berths are being built. The project was awarded to the SAPT company, with the goal of creating a navy complying with international standards, potentially competing on the Costa del Sol. Tanja Marina Bay (this is the name of the new marina in Tangier) will offer rentals for both long and short term, as well as technical equipment such as a dry dock, boat fuel distributors and a car park with over 450 places. In addition, there are collateral and entertainment activities such as a floating hotel, cruise services, entertainment and restaurant facilities, as well as commercial services. The renovation of the old railway station of the port of Tangier is linked to this project. It will welcome the sale showroom of the Marina and the headquarters of the company managing the port. By the end of 2017, the completion of the restructuring of the Tangier-ville Harbor Maritime Station will also be completed, and will continue to link Tangiers to the Spanish city of Tarifa, which is part of the overall plan for the revival of the port city. The marina project required an investment of 63 million euros, while the overall port investment amounted to 558 million euro, of which 198 million for port components, and 360 million for urban planning components (to be paid by UAE manufacturer Eagle Hills).
